  1. Thank you for sharing this Heidi. So important to maintain the NEA. And yet how quickly it is placed upon the chopping block by an unappreciative, narcissistic business man, pretending to be a leader and acting as figure head for his republican, nationalist comrades. He could care less about art and it shows. And we MUST resist.
